georgest57 & mlinhares6081,
It's been abt. 3 yrs since I last got into anyone from Fall River. I'd TOTALLY forgotten that the FR Library had this obit index on their site.
Thanks for the look-up and for bringing that resource back onto my radar scope.
With an obit date of 26 May 1951, then my person probably died on the 24th or the 25th.
FR Library's fees look very reasonable. One of the reasons I don't often order an obit unless I'm really in the dark about descendants is because so many places now charge such a large fee per copy + a service charge.
